I Am @ Youth.SG


I am @ Youth.SG because i want to win the 30GB Apple iPod and the grand prize of an Apple MacBook.

Hey, at least i'm honest ok! I don't give bullshit about wanting to entertain you with my writing. I mean, if on the way, people get a kick out of reading, then all the better right?

Don't you think that us youths are getting more and more detached from the world around us? I blame it on the fact that wherever i go, the signature white iPod earphones would be surgically attached to my ears.

Hey, don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining or anything because I AM THE iPOD GENERATION-tion-tion-tion-tion.....

It's more than just music, it's a lifestyle baby...

I am @ Youth.SG because i am a connected, higly motivated and gregarious youth who is aware of himself and others.

And i chronicle everything, big or small, on the various blogs that i've had.

I blogged about Tammy, joined Singapore Idol, shop at Ikea and love Ben & Jerry's.

Although many factors define me as a youth in SG, i've boiled it down to the 3 most important, namely food, self-image and air-con. These might not seem to have any links to Youth.SG, but if you read on, i'm sure you'll be convinced that they are in fact, the most important of all!

My number 1 motto in life, other than "Don't Worry, Be Happy", is "Live to Eat, not Eat to Live". I love my mee poks, char kway teows and tau huays so much that it's kinda been my downfall to the road of weight loss.

In fact, i love my food so much that i've actually created a food blog to introduce some of the yummilicious food that i had. My kiasu friends actually took down the places i've introduced and went to try them as well! Being a foodie and a blogger has made me marry the two of them together to form a beautiful union online.

Being a youth in Singapore, the pressure to look good is constantly around us.

Be it weight loss,

or teeth whitening,

the emphasis on the superficiality of humans are splashed across mediums like TV, newspapers and magazines, shaping the mindset of beauty in us impressionable youths.

And being youths, how can we afford such exorbitant products? I mean, we don't even have enough money to buy our own clothes from Topman, Zara, or FCUK already, where got spare cash to spend on these things?

We can only go to Carrefour to make a fool out of ourselves playing on OSIM's newest products (have you heard that there's a new foot reflexology thingy called iPoke? They have the most hilarious names possible. I mean, uPapa?!?).

Alternatively, we can use the universal tool of, just simply, praying.

And it's free!

I've spotted the rise in such advertisements and as you can see, i love parodying them to death on my blog.

And how can i be @ Youth.SG if not for air-con?

Being the pampered and sheltered youth that i am, no air-con how to survive? Especially in sunny Singapore, where it's hot and humid 24/7 everyday, 365 days a year.

I mean, of cos i can survive without air-con. I'm not as pampered as my brother.

This is what you get if you ask him to do more 听写 (chinese spelling).

He beats me hands down.

I don't hope to beat anyone hands down with this hastily done up, last minute blog entry (i just found out about this competition this morning), but i hope i at least have a chance at a prize ya?

I just have a feverish love for blogging and making people laugh, and i hope it translates because...

I don't want you to think of me as an eavesdropper so I'll just say that I'm listening to music instead of my neighbour's maid flirting with my other neighbour's driver.


I like it when people think of me as an intellectual so I will list a bunch of intellectual-sounding books here, even those I don't plan to read.


Since I can't list my porn collection here, I'll just leave it this way until I can force myself to watch non-pornographic stuff, which may or may not happen.
